NBA Picks and Parlays Today: Player Props & Betting Picks

The first step is finding the brand new Parlay Builder for OddsShopper. It is located on the top banner and is just one click away. This tool is a game changer because the Awesemo data scientists have built the parlay already. The user has the choice of what type of parlay they prefer to chase, and the slate is customizable along with the sportsbook. The parlay is built based on the top ROI bets based on Awesemo simulations and to exceed at least 10 times your initial bet. As a reminder, betting the props individually is always a smart way to build your bankroll. A 10x parlay is not exactly the most stable return if it is always being bet just as a parlay. Let us find out what the best-projected NBA player prop bets are for Thursday and build some NBA parlay picks. OddsShopper updates the parlay constantly, so this is a guideline, and all plays will be linked to build the particular parlay.

Bobby Portis Over 0.5 Blocks

The expected win rate from OddsShopper is 63%, and with an ROI of +130, that is a big deal. Portis is averaging 0.8 blocks per game for the Milwaukee Bucks, and he has had to step into a much larger role than they likely expected. Center Brook Lopez has barely played with a back injury, and Portis has been a core member of the starting group, averaging 28.5 minutes. On the season the 76ers are attempting roughly 36 shots per game from within nine feet of the basket, and Portis typically defends 6.5 shots per game under 10 feet from the hoop. With Joel Embiid lapping the rest of the league in attempts in the post-up game (5.5), Portis has plenty of chances to block just one shot tonight.

LaMelo Ball Under 20.5 Points

This is a wager that can go sideways incredibly fast because LaMelo Ball is so talented, but he is averaging 20.2 points per game and the Charlotte Hornets face the Miami Heat tonight. Ball is in the top 30 in the league in 3-point field goals attempted per game (7.3), and Miami does allow the highest frequency of attempts (46.3%). However, they are only 17th in field goal percentage allowed at 34.5%, and that is a fairly large gap. If Ball is struggling to hit the 3-point shot, the odds of him scoring 21 points or more would drop in a major way. On top of that, Miami is sixth in defensive rating on the season, and the total is 226.5, somewhat low for a Hornets game. OddsShopper has the expected win rate at 60% with a projection of 18.7 points for the NBA parlay.

Patty Mills Over 2.5 Assists

Placing a wager on points scored for Patty Mills seems scary because he has really been struggling with his shot for the Brooklyn Nets. The last five games have been under 10 points for Mills, and it might seem crazy to wager on the assists, as he has had just two and three in the last two games. However, those two games have been played with Seth Curry, who has helped the Brooklyn offense in a big way since being acquired from the 76ers. In those two games with Curry active, Mills has averaged 5.5 assists and 28.5 passes per game. Those numbers are not anything huge, but only three assists are needed and the matchup against the Washington Wizards is friendly. They are 22nd in defensive rating, and Mills has a 74% expected win rate from OddsShopper, the highest of the parlay.

Reggie Jackson Over 20.5 Points

Much like any game involving the Hornets, it is hard to not want to target players that face the Houston Rockets. That is where Reggie Jackson enters tonight, and OddsShopper has an expected win rate of 55% for this bet. The Clippers continue to surprise without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the lineup, and Jackson has the usage lead among the team with those two off the floor (29.9). He is not shy to take shots, with games of 26, 17, 21, 20 and 18 attempts among his last 10. Jackson also drives to the basket 10.5 times per game and is shooting 46.6% on those drives. Houston is dead last in points allowed in the paint this season, and adding in the layer of the Rockets ranking 30th in defensive rating and second in pace makes Jackson’s point total appealing. The Awesemo Parlay Calculator gives a return of +1516 on the NBA parlay tonight, which is great for just four legs.
